Milky Way and Caravansary

By: Amir H. Abolfath


Region: Middle East

Site: Izadkhast - Iran


The Milky Way in the constellations Scorpius and Sagittarius is captured above a caravansary in Izadkhast, an ancient city in Fars province of southern Iran. Caravansary (the home for caravans in Persian) is an old time roadside inn, a place for travelers to rest and recover from the day's journey. While today they are mostly turned to museums and historic reserved monuments, in old time Caravanserais supported the flow of commerce, information, and people across the network of trade routes covering Asia, North Africa, and South-Eastern Europe.
